"People with Special Needs have unique health needs that can effectively be addressed with a naturopathic functional approach. Helping families realize their child's potential is my passion."
I'm Dr. Candace Mathers, naturopathic doctor and mother of two amazing kids, one of whom has Down syndrome. Having a child with Down syndrome has made learning how to best support individuals with special needs one of my life's passions.
With naturopathic medicine, I have helped people with special needs and their families realize their full potential and begin to enjoy a full and healthy life.
Your child with special needs can thrive with naturopathic medicine. Let me show you how!
Why Special Needs Health?
Whoever says that kids with special needs have to suffer because of their genes is very much misinformed!
Medical science and academic research has advanced and now we have the amazing disciplines of epigenetics and nutrigenomics!
This means that we actually understand more about how our diet, behavior, and even beliefs affect the way our genes interact with our bodies! And this is true of people with special needs as well!
Think of your child with special needs no longer having long or frequent hospital stays, no more getting sick with every cold and flu season! That extra weight, or food sensory issues so common in people with special needs, gone! Mood swings or stubbornness? Gone!
Well... not completely! Kids with special needs are KIDS after all but a whole person-centered naturopathic approach can and does benefit every area of the person with special need's life!
A personalized naturopathic approach supports the body and mind with specialized nutrition, cognition enhancement, endocrine support, lifestyle change, and so much more, helping your child to thrive!

Hi! I'm Dr. Candace Mathers and my calling is to help your child with special needs thrive with a whole person-centered approach that involves the whole family!
My passion for caring for individuals with special needs came about with the pre-natal diagnosis and birth of my daughter who was diagnosed with Trisomy 21 and Tetralogy of Fallot with complete Atrioventricular canal (a congenital heart defect).
I was unable to accept that my daughter wouldn't be able to excel in life and that I just had to "accept that she wouldn't be able to do things like typical kids", just because she had Down syndrome.
Didn't my daughter deserve to have the best life, as free from pain and struggle, as possible?
With that belief, I poured myself into the study of Down syndrome and other disorders while attending naturopathic medical school.
I use nutrition, lab work, supplements, diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, botanical and homeopathic preparations, as well as many more modalities to help people with special needs thrive.
Your child is a unique blessing and he deserves to experience the best life possible!
